I would have loved to give this place a 5 star rating. The location, facility and staff certainly deserve that rating. The Inn is located as near the pier as possible and close to all sorts of great eating places and walking paths. The building is 150 years old and has been wonderfully decked out. Our room was huge, with a fireplace, the biggest jetted tub I've ever seen, comfortable bed--everything you imagine a great B&B to provide. BUT, the noise outside was awful. I'm a person who sleeps through nearly anything, but it sounded like the entire tourist crowd was camped out at the end of our bed. The yelling and laughing was constant until 2:00 a.m. They do provide ear plugs if you ask, but good luck sleeping with those things. I would love to return, but won't go back. The very nice and understanding receptionist sympathized with us about the noise and wondered out loud how anyone could sleep in those rooms. She said the inside rooms are less noisy, but, of course, you loose the view of the beach. So, I give the place an "average" rating--probably should be "poor," but I did absolutely love the place until about 10:00 p.m.

Room Tip: If you want to actually sleep, forgo the rooms with a view of the beach--and directly above the bars that are open until 2:00 a.m.

Quaint old-world rooms.
We had Room 1 which had fantastic views of the beaches, boardwalk and the pier.
Centre stage for everything.
Cafe's, Bars and restaurants, all within a short walking distance.
Free parking was avaliable less than 50 meters away.

We loved the place, the view( fabulous), the location- close to everything!. But the noise outside our window on the street below prevented any sleep at night! What was to be a relaxing getaway instead left us exhausted! The gal at the front desk gave us earplugs when we checked in...hhmmm. better to install thicker windows and blackout drapes to help muffle the noise. Otherwise we thought it was a charming place. So if you are a late night partier, and don't need lots of sleep, you will love it!

We are back again for our yearly visit, even if we did stay here 3 months ago. This is a wonderful place. Beautiful rooms, terrific service and a parking place. What more could you ask for. This is our 4th year, I'm sure there will be a 5th. The only thing I can say is: when you stay here you don't want to miss the restaurant. 21 Ocean front is one of the best.

This Inn is described as an Inn or Bed & Breakfast . It's really both, with the personal working the front desk and the breakfast servers and housekeepers being the best reasons to stay here, other than location. Yes, it can be noisy with the crowds right below but that did not bother me at all. It was fun to be a part of the boardwalk "scene". The sounds of the surf, proximity to the beach, and gorgeous sunsets made this an excellent choice for me!!!
